Dorothy Kunhardt’s Pat the Bunny is a children’s classic, with millions of copies sold. It’s inspired numerous spin-offs for both kids and adults—but none as wickedly amusing as this clever interactive book! Every wife, girlfriend, and woman who hopes to be one will treasure it, and have endless fun playing with the lift-the-flap, touch-and-feel, pull tabs, and other highly designed elements. It slyly questions who wears the pants in the family, and lets women humor their men by removing the Velcro pants from the female figure and putting it on the male. Or, eager to have hubby say yes to your request? Then just use the tab to make his head nod! Since all men are really little boys at heart, what better way to celebrate (okay—roast) their peccadilloes than with a kids’ book format? Pat the Husband takes amusing aim at the oddities of guys everywhere, making it the perfect gift from girlfriend to girlfriend, as well as for bridal showers and anniversaries. Every wife will recognize the humor in the quirky characteristics played out about “husbands everywhere”—and find a reason every day to sneak a peek and pat!
A wildly amusing addition to Pat the Husband, this parody continues the story of Paul and Judy, from their beginnings as newlyweds to celebrating the everyday grind of married life, and now to the stereotypical matters of a mid life crisis. Every spouse and married couple will appreciate the interactive humor as they use pull tabs, touch-and-feel, and other designed elements to see Paul and Judy through unnecessary purchases, vision loss, a dying sex life and marriage counseling; but in the end their love is always for better or worse! Paul and Judy have been through the demands of married life from wedding planning to parenting, and everyday co-habitation. But now that they’re a little older, things have changed. In this wildly amusing continuation of Pat the Husband, Paul and Judy face mid life crises with humor that that any couple can relate to! With interactive flap-lifts, pull-tabs, touch-and-feel and other design elements, readers see Paul and Judy through unnecessary purchases (pull Judy’s shopping bags out of the closet!), sleeping troubles (help Judy insert her ear plugs!), vision loss (find Paul’s glasses!) and a boring a sex life (pull tabs to reveal their thought bubbles!) This humorous take on the quirky characteristics of middle-aged husbands and wives makes the perfect gift for married couples, girlfriend-to-girlfriend and anniversaries; always great for a laugh, especially when these marital matters seem all too familiar!
Using cases taken from the authors' case files or from case files of other working clinicians, this casebook portrays the rich and arresting nature of disorders as they are displayed in real people. Cases illustrate every major DSM-IV category and are followed by a therapy outcome section which gives the "rest of the story" of what happened to these clients. The authors draw on an extremely current and thorough database, look at the multiple causes of disorders, and incorporate developmental and cultural issues in each case. Two complex cases are included without a diagnosis to give students an opportunity to come up with diagnoses on their own.
